NO-ONE saw Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas getting together. He, older than Mumm-Ra, she, precious and dead-eyed, made for one of the most unusual couples in Hollywood.

With huge surprise, it turns out that they are taking a break from their marriage.

A rep for Zeta-Jones confirms to CNN that the couple are in the middle of “evaluating” their relationship. “Catherine and Michael are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage,” the rep said.

There’s been ups-and-downs too. Of course, Douglas was diagnosed with cancer, to which Zeta-Jones stuck strongly by him. Then, Douglas came through and held her hand when she checked herself into a mental health facility to receive treatment for bipolar II disorder.

Now, seemingly with no drama to keep them together, they’re looking elsewhere.

Neither of them have actually moved to file for divorce or a legal separation, and a source close to the couple calls their separation “a break.”

But we all know what a break means. ‘We’ll kinda not see each other for a while and hopefully, the other one will actually break us up so I don’t have to look like a horrible git.’
